Goblin Glow – Lakeway City Park
Saturday, October 18
One of the most popular Halloween events in Austin is happening right here in Lake Travis at Lakeway City Park, the Great Goblin Glow! This unique, fun-filled, family-friendly event features glowing hot air balloons that illuminate the night sky. In addition to the parade of great costumes, kiddos enjoy plenty of candy, glitter tattoos, jugglers, balloon artists, tunes from DJ StratKat, rides and more. There’s even a live bat exhibit and a “spooky” Dead End Cemetery.
Halloween Trick or Treat Event – Hill Country Galleria
Saturday, October 25
The Hill Country Galleria is hosting its annual Trick or Treat event where kiddos can dress up and enjoy all sorts of fun activities like face painting, free bounce houses, bungee jump, and of course, more candy! The festivities get rolling at 2pm in the outdoor amphitheater with musical guest The Sassy Spurs. Trick or treating hours are from 4pm-6pm. The fun continues into the evening with a live music performance by The Brewbirds with Warren Hood at 7pm!
Fright Fest – Lakeway Regional Medical Center
This year, Lakeway Regional Medical Center has expanded its Halloween celebration to include three fun-filled nights of Halloween excitement. Don’t miss Fright Fest, the spookiest event in all of Lake Travis! This is definitely where you want to bring your bigger kiddos who enjoy a good scare. The haunted house is awesome! You can still bring little kiddos who can enjoy the costumes, the costume contest, the games and activities – they just might skip the haunted house. 😉 But there’s plenty of fun to be had for all ages. Food, pumpkin carving, a scavenger hunt, a fun run on Saturday and more.
